Sean Miller’s wife Amy Miller is the coach’s best authority. Even more so than his own brother, Dayton head coach Archie Miller.
When the couple first met, Amy Miller was a cheerleader at Pennsylvania’s BlackHawk High. Sean Miller had just transferred there as a sophomore and he was most certainly into basketball. This was some 29 years ago. It’s no wonder Amy Miller known the man so well.
Back then, Sean Miller’s wife was drawn to his ability to make her laugh as well as his surprisingly low-key attitude about attributes others might brag about. When Sean Miller was minutes away from receiving an award for being a standout point guard for the University of Pittsburgh, he casually mentioned it and asked Amy Miller to go. Now that’s low-key.
“I’d say, ‘Where are your notes? Where’s your speech?’ And he’d say, ‘Aw, I don’t have one. I’ll just talk,’” – Amy told cincinnati.com.
Even though Sean Miller isn’t into bragging, Sean Miller’s wife is well aware that her husband hates to lose. Once, when they were dating, apparently Sean wanted to win a game of miniature golf so badly he tried to distract Amy during a putt. Look, we’re not in the business of judging it. Win, baby, win.
Sean Miller’s wife: Basketball Widow
Sean Miller’s wife previously spent some of her days online. She created a once famous Twitter account, @abballwidow. USA Today profiled her in 2017:
Amy first began calling herself, jokingly, a basketball widow, to friends back when she and Sean lived in North Carolina. Sean was an assistant coach at North Carolina State from 1996 to 2001 before leaving for Xavier, and then eventually Arizona. Amy remembers the latter part of her days in North Carolina first as a first-time mom, then a mom with another on the way … and an otherwise empty house.
“Sean was never home,” Amy says, laughing. “I was like a widow by myself all the time.”
Now, after 25 years of marriage and three grown, or nearly grown children. Their oldest, Austin is 22, with Cameron 19 and Braden 16. Prior to the wiretap catching Coach Miller talking player payments, the couple was fully settled into their Tucson Arizona home. Even after a short-lived 40-hour scare in 2011 that the family might move to Maryland. It was s rough transition for the family of five at first, but they are there to stay. And despite her desert allergies, Amy Miller and the kids love Tucson.
